xorgconfig(1)               General Commands Manual              xorgconfig(1)

       xorgconfig, xorgcfg - generate an xorg.conf file

       The  xorgcfg(1) and xorgconfig(1) utilities for generating xorg.conf(5)
       files are no longer included in this release.

       The Xorg(1) server does not require a configuration file in many cases,
       and  will  autoconfigure  itself if one is not present.  If the default
       configuration does not meet your needs, you may use one of these alter-
       native methods to generate an xorg.conf file for customization:

        *     When Xorg is started without a configuration file, the xorg.conf
              data it generates automatically is logged in /var/log/Xorg.0.log
              and may be copied to an xorg.conf file for customization.

        *     /usr/bin/Xorg  -configure,  when  the server is not already run-
              ning, will provide a sample configuration file for the currently
              detected hardware in the system.

        *     Users  of  Nvidia  graphics devices may use the provided nvidia-
              settings(1)  and  nvidia-xconfig(1)  utilities  to  generate  or
              update device-specific configurations.

        *     Users of Sun graphics devices for the SPARC platform may use the
              fbconfig(1) utility to generate or update  device-specific  con-
